Lowery’s career began as an intern at Primera during college and has continued successfully with the firm for 10 years thus far. With her husband, she has taken breaks from work to travel and to care for their first child, who was born this spring. She has an inquisitive nature with impeccable organization and follow-through skills that have earned respect within and beyond the firm. One of her most exciting projects includes renovations of an Evanston, Ill., Northwestern University building that was built in 1915.

She is one of only a handful of engineers that was able to develop the skill sets required of a project manager and to successfully make the transition.

With the ACE Mentor Program, she has helped more than 200 students learn about the engineering industry in the past 6 years. Lowery is an active member in the Illinois chapters of ASHRAE and the U.S. Green Building Council. Outside of engineering, Lowery enjoys playing volleyball, volunteering, and socializing.

Annual Salary Survey

Before the calendar turned, 2016 already had the makings of a pivotal year for manufacturing, and for the world.

There were the big events for the year, including the United States as Partner Country at Hannover Messe in April and the 2016 International Manufacturing Technology Show in Chicago in September. There's also the matter of the U.S. presidential elections in November, which promise to shape policy in manufacturing for years to come.

But the year started with global economic turmoil, as a slowdown in Chinese manufacturing triggered a worldwide stock hiccup that sent values plummeting. The continued plunge in world oil prices has resulted in a slowdown in exploration and, by extension, the manufacture of exploration equipment.
